Items View Tab

The Items View tab displays any items/documents that exist directly under the selected node (that is, the content of any subfolders under the selected node-will not be displayed), along with column metadata.


There are four main options that are available through this tab. These options are:

·Search – To perform a full or partial text search, enter the string in the search box then either and either press <Enter>, or click the magnifying glass icon to run the search.

NOTE:  The search will be run on the name column (the FileLeafRef) by default, but you can select a different column to search from the drop-down to the right of the search box.


·Refresh - This button will refresh all of the items in the Items View tab.

·Show/Hide Version History - This button option is only available when the selected document library/list has versioning enabled. When this button is selected the Items View tab will be divided into two sections, a top section displaying all of the items/documents and a bottom section displaying all of the versions for the selected item/document.

Items View

When an item/document is selected in the top window, all of that item/document's version’s will be listed in the bottom half of the window. You can then look at the metadata for each item/document version that exists. This option can be combined with the Show/Hide Properties button.

If the Show Version History button has already been selected, this will change to be a Hide Version History button instead. You can use this option to stop looking at item/document version histories.

·Show/Hide Properties - The Show Properties button allows you to see a list-style view of the available fields (columns) and their values, for a selected item/document. Any value listed in dark text can be edited and within the window.

Items View Properties

The fields in the Properties window can also be ordered by category, or alphabetically. By default, the fields are ordered by category, and are listed alphabetically within each category. If listed alphabetically, then all property fields (columns) will be listed in alphabetical order, with no breakdown by category. There are two buttons at the top of the Properties window that can be used to determine what ordering type is used. This option can be combined with the Show/Hide Version History button.

If the Show Properties button has already been selected, this will change to be a Hide Properties button instead. Use this option to close the Properties window.

Browser View Tab

The Browser View displays a view of the content as it would be seen in a web browser for a selected SharePointnode. It is also available if selecting a single item in the Items View. When selected, this tab will display a fully functioning web browser view of the selected content. You can use this Browser View to navigate or work with their content, the same way they would through a normal web browser window.
